iSC MS Soccer Tournament & Season 1 Recap
We came back this past weekend from a very successful iSC MS Soccer Tournament in Yantai. The 3 coaches from TIS took 12 middle school boys and 2 girls.
The TIS girls team did not have enough girls able to go to the tournament, so two of the TIS 8th grade girls went and played for the ISW team. Though we were sad not to be able to take a girl's team to the tournament, Anna Mae and Keli played great for ISW, with each of them scoring at least one goal.
After the round-robin games on Thursday and Friday, Both the TIS boys as well as Keli and Anna playing for the ISW Girls found themselves in the 3rd Place game on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Both of the games tied and went into extra time. At the end of the time, both teams proceeded to penalty kicks, where both sides won their matches in penalty kicks.
It was an exciting and dramatic end to the tournament for all the TIS Athletes involved. This tournament marks the conclusion of the MS Soccer seasons.
As the soccer balls are put into storage until the spring, and the volleyball nets are readjusted for the upcoming middle school volleyball seasons, season 1 comes to an end. We want to show you this video, made by a TIS student, that highlights the many student-athletes who played high school volleyball and middle school soccer. The student-athletes have worked hard at practices while competing in many games and tournaments throughout Season 1.
Thanks to the coaches, parents, teachers, and students who supported the many student-athletes who participated in Season 1.
